Michael ChletsosI talk to many Assembla Customers in a day, I figure that others can benefit from this direct communication with the VP of Engineering at Assembla.  

I am hosting an IAMA this Thursday, January 24th between 1600 and 2000 UTC.  Please join me and Ask Me Anything.  I will answer as truthfully as possible by a human.

Some Topics that might be discussed:

  • How to use Assembla Code Review
  • How to integrate Tickets and Code Commits
  • How to use Stories and Tasks
  • What is the future of Assembla
  • What are the features of Assembla?
  • What does it do other than store code or track bugs?
  • Anything else you can think of.

So stop by and ask me anything: Reddit IAmA

 UPDATE: Thank you all who joined and asked questions, I learned a lot, I also really enjoyed it.  I will try to do another soon.  Those who missed it, feel free to read the past from the link above.

Are there any plans to include native test case support? 
We can make the product work with associated tickets but its not elegant. 
 
We frequently tests the same issues over and over for regression testing or log the same defect across multiple spaces since they represent customer sites in our case.  
 
Do you expect to add COPY ticket functionality into the "Bulk Update" page?  
 
 
Thanks

Native Test Cases: Current Roadmap - No, but we talk about it. I like the idea of having this in the system, associated with component - so once you set a component, a set of cases are associated, then you can mark them as Passed/Failed/NA or similar with a comment. The results would be displayed once tested . . . 
 
Copy Ticket Fn: Do you mean that it would copy a ticket Description and fields to another ticket in the same space or another space? I guess since you are asking in Bulk Update section, you want to create a template set of tickets and just copy them into place in the new Space. This can be accomplished somewhat easily with a custom API script - (Pull ticket from Space X, Push ticket to space Y). I am compiling a list of useful scripts that will go into a Community Section and will be downloadable - retrieving tickets and writing tickets is on the list, its just a matter of calling one then the other.
